Abstract
    Recommended Total Allowable Catches (TACs), agreed Tacs and actual catches of cod, haddock, whiting, sole and plaice in the North Sea between 1981 and 1990 are compared. Conclusions are drawn on the adherence of fisheries administrators to bioligical advice and of fishermen to agreed TACs. From average fishing mortalities by year, fishing mortality indices are derived for catches as well as for recommended and agreed TACs. These are used as indices of fishig effort. Their relative courses lead to some reflections and conclusions on the soundness of the present fisheries management system.
